Sarah Gray has been storytelling all of her professional life. As a writer and filmmaker she is delighted by what she fears and loves to explore the darkly comic side of the human psyche. In a scary and illogical world there is plenty to allow her imagination free reign.

Master of the short story, her three collections - Surface Tension, Half Life and Urban Creatures - are a resplendent trilogy with curious stories that cause disquiet and heartache with a chilling sting of pleasure.

Stories enable us to face the worst that can happen and then get back to everyday life pretending the terrible stuff only happens to other people. Most of the time…

"Half Life is quite something. I just loved Sarah's idea of what it means to be a ghost." - Tracy C

“Fear will give you Fight

Fight will give you Freedom

Dive in and Swim”
Sarah Gray, Surface Tension

“After her declaration to become a ghost, her sister had given a nervous half-laugh and said that she didn't want Adelaide to do anything to scare her. Adelaide had agreed, but said she'd move things around her home just to confuse her. And laughed too. Her husband, Simon, had told her not to be morbid and reminded her that the consultant wasn't sure. It was possible she might live.”
Sarah Gray, Half Life
